Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw presents Bernard Shaw's historical epic comedy, CAESAR AND CLEOPATRA, on Monday, February 25 at 7pm at The Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South) in Manhattan. David Staller produces and directs.
Shaw's epic comedy CAESAR AND CLEOPATRA takes us back to a highly romanticized ancient Egypt. Led by the mighty Caesar, the conquering Romans enter Egypt only to encounter one surprise after another: none more surprising than the consuming determination of the teenage Queen of the Nile, the legendary Cleopatra, who will stop at nothing to secure her
throne for herself.
The cast features Nikki M. James as Cleopatra, Daniel Davis as Caesar, Sharon Washington as Ftatateeta, Tony Yazbeck as Apollodorus, Nick Wyman as Pothinus, David Drake as Theodotus, Patrick Boll as Rufio, Chris Burns as Lucius, Roberto Cambeiro as The Royal Sentinel, Michael Markham as Achillas, James Joseph O'Neil as Brittanus, and Matthew
Schecter as the boy king Ptolemy XIV.
Donna Karger of NY1 is the narrator for the evening. David Staller produces and directs all of the PROJECT SHAW readings.
Now in its eighth year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present every play (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches) written by George Bernard Shaw.
